Banks covered by the Dutch deposit guarantee scheme better accessible

Date 2 September 2011

Please note that you can obtain a complete overview of all banks falling under the Dutch deposit guarantee scheme. Now the visitor can tell at a glance whether a bank is covered by the Dutch DGS. This is worth knowing, since the Dutch DGS covers individuals for deposit balances up to EUR 100,000. The maximum-cover is up to € 100,000 per accountholder per bank, regardless of the number of accounts held.

Nearly every payment or savings account, current account or term deposits is covered by the Scheme. Shares are not covered, nor are most bonds. Click here to view the registers

Electronic money institutions that are not banks as well, are not covered by the Scheme.

If your bank is not in the Register, it is not covered by the Dutch Deposit Guarantee Scheme.

Please note that Rabobank branches, which are entered as separate licensed financial institutions in the Wft-register, currently are not listed in this overview [Wft = Wet op het Financieel Toezicht or Financial Supervision Act]. We are working hard to set this straight as soon as possible.
